Does Prince Harry Need Meghan Markle More Than She Needs Him?

It’s no secret that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle make a great couple. The two of them have a lot in common and are known to have influenced each other in positive ways.

Now that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are parents to a baby boy, it seems the couple will rely on each other even more for love and support.

However, Andrew Morton, the famous author of Princess Diana’s tell-all book, recently shared that he believes Prince Harry actually needs Meghan Markle more than she needs him. But why does he think so and is this true? Let’s look at what we know.

According to Morton, Prince Harry has always loved children and, as such, has been desiring for a chance to start his own family for a while now.

Morton shared:

“I was looking at some pictures of Harry when he was about eight years old and he’s cradling a friend’s baby. He was always adoring of children and you can see that today. You can see that today. He’s gone from being a little boy who liked kids to being an adult who was desperate for a family.”

The prince has since found a great wife in Meghan Markle. Not only was Meghan looking to have children as well, but given how grounded and down-to-earth the former actress is, she has what it takes to provide their family with lots of stability – a contrast to some of Prince Harry’s past girlfriends when he was still known as a party boy.

Meghan Markle has changed Prince Harry for the better

With Meghan Markle, Prince Harry has also changed in positive ways. Most notably, he has been seen living a much healthier lifestyle than before.

Ever since she became an actress whose career depended on her looks, Meghan Markle has been known to take care of herself quite well. She does yoga everyday and eats very balanced, healthy meals. On some days, she also tries to eat vegan.

Because of her, Prince Harry has reportedly cut down on eating junk food, smoking, and drinking. He enjoys meals that Meghan cooks and snacks that she puts in their fridge. Harry even accompanies Meghan on the occasional shopping trips to wellness stores.

Does Meghan Markle need Prince Harry as well?

As mentioned before, Meghan Markle wanted to have children just like Prince Harry. She actually shared in a 2016 interview: 

“I dreamt [of becoming] a successful working actress… And I also dream to have a family. It’s all about balance, and I have so much happiness in my career and am fortunate to travel the world and see so many amazing things. It will also be nice to be anchored to something grounded and in the same place. Raising a family will be a wonderful part of that.”

We have no doubt that meeting Harry, who had the same goals and visions, must have been a dream come true for Meghan.

Aside from being able to finally start a family of her own, with Harry, Meghan has also been able to garner people’s attention and promote causes she cares about.

As an actress, she did have some popularity from being on a famous TV show, but she was nowhere near being the household name that she is today. Even when she was still an actress, though, Meghan Markle had been passionate about fighting for women’s rights and equality. 

Now that she is one of the most popular royals in the world, the Duchess of Sussex is focusing on using the platform she got from marrying Prince Harry to continue being a voice for underprivileged people.
